Is your mind a racing car thundering through streets not sure of which turn to take. Take yourself out of the busyness of your day and transport your mind and body to a different world helped by the sounds and rhythms of the gongs.  Through consultations with me, we will build a mutual trust where we can formulate the perfect journey to help your mind and body relax. Find inner peace, make daily tasks manageable, be more compassionate in relationships. This isn’t a “new age” phenomenon but rather a two thousand year old practice that utilizes wave forms and frequencies that can temper physical, emotional and behavioral problems.

To qualify as a gong and sound healing therapist I have been training with Martyn Cawthorne and the Northern School of Sound-smiths with the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine and insured through Westminster to practice. I take great pride in bringing my wealth of experience with compassion to each and every session I lead. Whether it is a one to one or group session, I will take my lead from you and the atmosphere in the room that participants bring with them to take you on a journey that will bring inner calm and rejuvenate energy levels.

Comments on the sound journey:

“I didn’t know where I was, who I was or what I was doing but I felt safe, content and energised.
The sound journey was amazing, my whole body tingled and could feel the sound moving through it.
The sound took over me and I felt part of it. I felt disembodied – my arms floated off in the sound”.

“After the session ended I felt extremely relaxed and emotionally grounded and had the best nights slept for a long time.
This feeling of grounding has been persistent since the session and helped me make more informed logical decisions rather than feeling overwhelmed emotional and sometimes lost.
I would highly recommend anyone trying this experience.”

“Hi Craig, great meeting you too! I felt great, I had a bit of a strange experience in that I’d been getting a bit of a nagging earache for a few weeks prior to seeing you, then later that night it got really intense & then it’s disappeared & hasn’t returned!”
